Jackie Robinson Story, The


Published 1950


This biography of Jackie Robinson is not a great film. More than anything it represents a significant milestone in baseball and the civil right movement. Jackie doesn't do a terrible acting job which you don't really notice because the screen play, although light, is very face paced. The viewer is rocketed through the life of a young pre-teen Jackie Robinson, his football college career, touches on his military service in the second world war, his minor league career, and through his 1949 season with the Brooklyn Dodgers.

I really enjoyed this movie, Jackie is a much better actor than you would expect, and getting a chance to see him in action on the baseball field is still exciting. They don't have many speedsters like him in the big leagues anymore. This movie is a little on the melodramatic side, but it doesn't shy away from the opposition that Jackie faced, and still makes you root for Jackie. Definately worth a watch.
